    Insignia 37" LCD 1080P

    Picture quality of current DVD players? Options

    I dont think the cables are the problem, unless they are really beat up. Maybe make sure the dvd player is set for progressive-auto (might be a little switch on the back of the dvd player), or make sure its set to display Film source.

    Do i need 7 speaker for DTS 6.1?

    I play dts ES with a 5.1 receiver and it sounds just fine, the surrounds are discreet and sounds excellent. I think Chris is right, there is normal dts 5.1 information on the ES format and the 6th channel info is just a bonus as its discreet and does nothing to hinder the discreet sound if you...

    Directly from the TV? Using the left and right audio out? If so probably the TV. What kind of TV?

    Trading in a car.

    Depends on the car. Usually they don't care about stuff like that.

    Speaker Distances??

    I think the sound would just be delayed if you told your receiver your speakers were farther than they are. I would recommend setting the distance correctly for proper delay. Thats my opinion.

    Home theater in a box question

    Can you borrow some good speakers from someone to test this? Loudness is subjective, do you mean like way below reference levels? roughly 75dB? Do you have your speakers set to "small"?

    Subtitle confusion!

    So the player only displays what the disc tells it to?

    Subtitle confusion!

    The player generated sub-titles seem to butcher up the original dialogue too. Lots of missing dialogue and substitution words. At least on "Real Genius", as I found out the other day.

    Center channel placement.....

    I also use under screen placement angled up, it is closer to the level of the mains. In the above position the center would be too high and imaging may be off balanced, thats my experience anyway. Welcome to HTF Dallas. :)

    Home theater in a box question

    I wonder about the capability of the HTiB speakers tweeters too. Have you tried diferent speakers? Might save you some down time sending in the amp.

    I hear voices...

    What method, format and media type are you recording onto? Probably doesn't matter, but it might help to pinpoint the unwanted voices. Maybe your satellite is picking up some foreign signals. Sorry, thats not much help, I'm sure someone with experience with this kind of thing will show up...
